Welcome to my Blog

Hello and Welcome to my Blog I am so glad you found me. Here you will find a mixture of cards made from digital sheets purchased from the Craftsuprint website, cards made from rubber stamps and other bits and pieces. I got into cardmaking a few years ago by going to a class, then I got the bug. The thing I really like about crafting is that you are constantly learning so you never get bored. Please feel free to follow my Blog and you are most welcome to leave a comment.

I Love You!

Hi Everybody, I hope your Valentine's Day has been going well, I am having a chilled day relaxing and eating all things naughty - lol....
I thought I would share with you the card I made for my Hubby and I was so pleased he liked it. 

I made up an 8" x 8" card blank using two pieces of white A4 card attaching them together and trimmed down to size, I covered it with a Hunkydory swirly black/gold card. I embossed a piece of red card stock and attached to the card base. then used black mirri card to cut out a die 3 times and wrapped ribbon around the centre of the card and cut out the 'I Love You' sentiment twice in gold and once in black and off-set them slightly to add more definition to the centre of the card. To finish the card I added lots of red gems and the diamond sections running through the centre of the card are the waste from the die which I stuck back into the card using sticky pads. 

Items used
Hunkydory - Black/Gold card stock
Sue Wilson (Creative Expressions) - Bevelled Glass Striplet Die
